Island Life...

Since we last spoke, I have been enjoying more than my fair share of good times. Hence the absence of computer scanning, digitizing, internetting and blogging.   

In brief, my life as of late has been filled with incredible experiences.  Each new piece is fitted into the grand picture like a masterpiece Lego replica of the Methuselah tree.
I have been learning, educating, working, playing and traveling, all under the assumed identity of a permaculture designer known as Saul Malone.  I taught a workshop in Olympia, attended a fruit tasting in Portland, took a work trade tour of PC sites in coastal BC, harvested my heirloom peppers,  ate a 4 deer and 2 squirrels,  pressed 40+ gallons of apple cider, found my favorite plum (the Green Gage)  and started work on a potentially life changing project.  On the whole, it has been a grand introduction to the possibilities that life holds.  I am really starting to see how I want to live out the rest of my corporeal existence so that I may project myself into the spectrum of multiple future dimensions as an ambassador of good times, good food and good feelings.  This is a prime incentive for me to really start operating at full potential... whatever that may look like.


Design, Design, Design

I love design. This is becoming very clear to me.

Just two nights ago I attended my very first and only Loris 2028 concept album release party. The books were hot off the press and sold like trippytronic, sci-fi, dub, concept album, artbooks at a really killer concert. They are all indiviually numbered and come complete with a 13 track CD and a 15 page illustrated guide to future world. They will be for sale in Bellingham, Seattle, Vancouver, Portland and online just as soon as we can so if your interested in plants, animals and/or machines just let me know. In the meantime you can check out the artwork at Loris2028.blogspot.com. Once your there you might take a moment to contribute your interpretation of the story untold. It is our intention to have our audience provide us with their own literary creations and you can do this by posting on the website. Write a poem, a fable, a haiku or a whole novel, just write and we would love to hear from you.

The secondesign was recently executed off farm. A fellow intern and myself completed our first landscape design installation, working entirely independently. It was a learning experience, a lot of fun and a success all at the same time. As I move on into this crazy world, I should hope to carry this practice with me. Perhaps on my new free bicycle which I scored while in Bellingham. It is gunmetal, and I traded a copy of my CD Artbook for it, which is a pretty sweetdeal and integrates perfectly with my summer goal of Publication, Publication, Education and Transportation. Upon completion of these tasks I will level up into a fully mobile sustainable design studio.

The thirdesign is the most fresh. Just this afternoon, i attended the opening ceremony of our brand new (*mostly reused materials) chicken coup. Complete with Beer, Compsting produce and Cockfighting, a good time was had by all, except guillermo, who lost his position as top cock to the new heavyweight champion Subcommandante Marcos. They are now my new neighbors, and seeing as they wake up so early, I ought to head to bed.

But before I go... I am the happiest, luckiest most priveleged and greatful young man to be surrounded by such an amazing community and environment. I have never felt so great in my entire life. To anyone and everyone, may the best days of your past be the worst days of your future.

PS- I will get a picture up soon
